Nice to see the early reviews are pretty favourable for Harry Potter 3.
Would have been a shame to ruin the best book (although four did grow on
me more and more after I read it). The change of director probably a
master stroke given the pretty dramatic change of tone in the book, and
of course Gary Oldman would appear to be yet another piece of perfect
casting (like Alan Rickman as Snape). Very keen to see it!! Anyone seen
any notice of advanced screenings?

Anyone know why it's getting released in Tasmania on June 3, or what the
marketing angle behind that is.

Basically because of when school holidays fall Tasmania quite often
has movies first.

My friend tried to get an advance screening organsied (for a fundraising
event) but Warner Bros apparently doesn't want to release the film earlier
than the release date.

If you happened to be in Tasmania it opens today Jun 3, rest of the
country next week.

Yup. Didn't like the first two at all, but I share your optimism about this
one. Trailer is very good.

I believe it has something to do with the timing of the school
holidays down there - different from the rest of Australia.

From what I hear, there will be no Australian screenings until Sunday
afternoon (press screenings).

I disliked the 2nd. If I had kids I would have banned them from seeing it.

They become progressively darker after the 2nd book which isn't
particularly darker than the first book. The 2nd book is the worst of
the series and because the film follows it so closely its dire as
well, not that the first one was a particularly good film. Like others
I've looking forward to The Prisoner of Azkaban, its my favorite book
of the series.

I must say, when I read it, I really had no idea how they would pull off
the climax and denouement on film, I am really interested to see how it
comes off.

Oh, and I had forgotten another fascinating piece of casting. Timothy
Spall as Peter Pettigrew, very nice!
